This is pure is BS
Let me start this off with a question...
What kind of a guy is Matt Cassel? Good guy? Jerk? What?
Don't know? How about Sam Bradford? How are his leadership skills? Is he respected by his teammates?
Still nothing? What about Brandon Weeden? Got anything on him?
No? Ryan Fitzpatrick maybe?
Now why is it that people on this board don't seem to know as much about some of these other quarterbacks as they do about ours?
The reason is pretty simple actually. You don't care.
They're not important to your fanhood, so you don't think much about them. And why should you? It's not worth the effort to you really, is it?
Now if, on the other hand, you lived in the Kansas City area, or Buffalo, or Cleveland, or Saint Louis, you'd likely hear plenty about these guys. In fact, they'd be the primary topic of conversation among the fanbase because quarterbacks generally are. And if they were slighted by the national media, you'd probably get in a huff about how they disrespected the quarterback of your team so unfairly.
But of course, since you live here and you're a Panthers fan, you don't worry about those guys. And if you heard some random comment about them from the media, minus a frame of reference, you'd likely be inclined to believe it.
So knowing that, lemme ask you this...
Other than in our team rivals' cities, how much thought do you really think the rest of the country gives Cam Newton?
I'd wager the answer is probably about as much thought as you give Matt Flynn.
A Panther fan has no more reason to care about Sam Bradford or Blaine Gabbert than a Ram or Jaguar fans has to care about Cam, but look at the comment section in any Cam article and It would be filled with Rams fans, Jaguar fans and any other NFL team fan. Write a story about Matt Flynn and watch the tumbleweeds blow through. Why is that?
Any Cam story will generate high clicks and high comments. But somehow that equates to people not really caring? Writers don't make a living writing about things nobody cares about and the Panthers fan-base is not big enough for a national writer to cater too. So clearly these story aren't be written just for Panther fans.
You must be living in a bubble if you believe what you just posted.
